While attending a fund-raiser event last night, the notorious TV host made the sensational revelation that he had been ‘sacked’ from Top Gear.
He then went on to launch a rant against the BBC. He said “There was an 18 year waiting list to be in the audience of Top Gear, but the BBC has f****d themselves.”
“It was a great show and they’ve f****d it up, tonight’s the night when you have the opportunity.”
The official line by the BBC is that Clarkson was ‘suspended’, rather than ‘sacked’, after he had a physical confrontation with Irish producer Oisin Tymon during filming for the famous TV show.
An internal investigation is ongoing, and the BBC will announce the findings next week.
